About Sonia Sharma, MD
Dr. Sharma is a board certified gastroenterologist who believes in wholistic gastrointestinal care. She works closely with a team of dieticians, physical therapists, nurses, and other specialty physicians at Keck/USC to provide comprehensive care for her patients. As a general gastroenterologist, she has a range of interests and expertise, including pelvic floor health, constipation and other motility disorders, gastrointestinal cancer screening and prevention, gastrointestinal bleeding, women’s health and nutrition, and the role of the gut microbiome in gastrointestinal diseases. She performs and interprets various endoscopies, including upper endoscopy (also known as EGD), colonoscopy, flexible sigmoidoscopy, small intestine and large intestine video capsule endoscopy, fecal transplantation, as well as anorectal manometry. She also teaches about gastrointestinal disease and management to the next generation of physicians as part of Keck/USC’s medical school, residency, and fellowship training programs. 
My philosophy when it comes to practicing gastroenterology and medicine is to consider the entirety of my patient – physical, emotional, and environmental factors – all of which can contribute to gastrointestinal disease. In addition to providing thorough evaluations and practicing evidence-based care, it is important for me to build a partnership with my patients and understand what their needs are, as well as what their goals are as it relates to their care.
